Driving while stupid

Fenton's story appears to corroborate witnesses' and Jayne Miller's version of the James Smith/Kendra Diggs barricade/murder situation: police rescued Diggs from the house, but left her to die on the sidewalk once Smith started shooting.*

One of Wednesday's homicide victims, Joseph Haskins, was the mayor's cousin.* Also TIL her brother Wendell Rawlings was attacked with a sword in 2002.

Allegedly speedballing alleged vehicular manslaughterer Johnny Johnson was indicted today on nine counts.

 Larry Feldman
?!? allegation: that when the State's Attorney's office wanted to speak with Larry Feldman's client Isiah Callaway about one Tavon Davis, Feldman called Davis and suggested Davis deal with him using the "Sicilian option." A few days later Callway was killed in a $2,000 murder for hire.

At first I read this headline as "Charles Street to be closed for 29 years"... which is probably true.

The Spectator is out of jail and Tweeting.

House Republicans locate nards, demand jail tour, O'Malley renews cry for cell-phone blocking in prison,* a topic first broached in 2007 after a prisoner used a cell phone to order a murder from prison. Really you don't need a cell phone for that, any old prison phone will do. But this state loves nothing more than a one-shot expensive solution.

Scan Baltimore picked up --and Fenton verified-- a ridiculous, breathless car chase in the Northeast over a stop sign not fully stopped at and a marijuana cigarette on Wednesday starting at 10:09 p.m. (About 60% through the clip here)

A woman groped and carjacked on E. Fayette.

Guilty pleas from two restroom pickpocket/identity thieves.

The Bloods still exist in HoCo, 18 were indicted yesterday

To the East Baltimore campus
Since January of this year, there have been seven reported “snatch and grab” incidents of cell phones from Johns Hopkins staff, students and visitors. In response to these incidents on the East Baltimore medical campus and the surrounding areas of Baltimore City, Corporate Security wishes to make our community aware of an excellent video recently released by The Johns Hopkins University on this growing trend. This short production highlights several common scenarios and how to avoid becoming a victim. We encourage everyone to take a moment to view the video and to share it with your departments.

You can view the video at

All faculty, staff and students are asked to keep their cell phones secure as they move about the city. Victims are being targeted as they talk and text on the phones, and are not paying attention to their surroundings.

Should you find yourself the victim of a robbery, always remember to stay calm, listen and observe intently. Do not resist, give up your property and report the crime as soon as possible.
